The co-main event of Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA) 12 will be Efrain Escudero taking on Luis Palomino. They join a card which features an unprecedented four title fights.
Escudero won The Ultimate Fighter 8 but was given two releases and left the Octagon more often than not a defeated man. A few weeks back he got a decision over Zack Surdyka at Bellator 100. He earned a win against Mike Rio in his only CFA appearance in 2011.
Palomino has competed for Bellator, but CFA has been his home as of late. He started the year droping a lightweight title match and returned with a first round knockout of Robert Washington.
CFA 12 is October 12 from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. The main card airs on AXS TV. Below is the updated card.
Joshua Sampo vs. Sam Thao for the CFA flyweight championship
